dave from what i understand is that Sirius will be streaming the dead audio as 128 wma which is not lossless.128 wma is roughly the same as 160 bit rate for mp3.which is not very good imho.maybe the shows will pop up at mp3 sites.anyway since lossless legs is strictly a shn/flac place they will not be seeding 160 bit rate mp3 streams.besides charlie will more and likely get the shows out that they stream.

I sampled Sirius a few weeks ago. They charge more to get that 128 kbs feed. Some of those shows will probably show up at the MP-3 sites too.

And how many times have we seen a liberated SBD from the Grateful Dead Hour, that winds up at certain lossless sites? One of the better known uploaders of HQ torrents is part of the inside crowd. I'm not the only one, who has downloaded shn and flac files taken from the master disks...
